Anton Jerger

Dr. Anton Jerger of Vienna was a philatelist who, in 1983, was awarded the Crawford Medal by the Royal Philatelic Society London for his handbooks on the philately of Austrian Lombardy-Venetia.[1] He amassed a world class collection of this area over fifty years with his wife Elisabeth. The collection was sold in instalments by Corinphila with the first instalment alone raising $1,800,000.[2]

In 1984, Dr. Jerger was the first Austrian to be elected to the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists.[3]
